I don't know whether these are eligible to sneak in pre 1998 or not, but I thought that they might interest someone.

180/160 wavey rotors

Now, the snag. I've stripped some of the threads on one of the front mounts :oops:

There's still about 50% thread left in there, so a longer bolt should hold it in place just fine. I just fancied a different set of brakes, so this was the perfect excuse ;)

Everything else is in absolutely excellent condition and the brakes work faultlessly.

This is the best I can capture the threads. They're about 50% gone. It was my own fault as I was using a lot of washers, so the bolt didn't thread all the way into the caliper. A longer bolt (or using less washers between caliper and fork!) would sort it out I'm sure.
